Project Overview: During my first semester as an RA in Wesley’s all male freshman dorm Williams Hall, security searched the entire building after BB gun pellets were found on the first floor. It was a hot topic for several weeks afterwards, and several residents were upset about the way the search was carried out. After telling my Area Coordinator about my residents’ complaints, I decided the situation was newsworthy enough for me to make a newsreel-style video about it for my Video Production class.
Goals: My goal in making this video was to capture the attitude of my residents and fellow RA’s about the search, from negative to positive. I also wanted to shed some light on the justification for the search, as several residents questioned it.
